Truro City FC visitor information

Truro City FC. Treyew RoadTruro, Cornwall TR1 2TH 

c.3500 Capacity; c.1675 seated. Part covered. Entrance is £11 adult,  £7.00 for OAP's, £2.00 for children 12 to 16 years.

Parking is limited though an overspill car park exists at the County Hall, 500 m west from the ground.

The mainline railway station is a maximum 10 minute walk to the ground with gradient.

Refreshments can be found within the bustling city centre; A2B taxi (01872 272989) is recommended from the city to the ground, or take the 15 minute walk (virtually -all uphill).

Recommended hostelries for Away and Home fans include the popular Crab and Ale House in New Bridge Street; Old Ale House in Green Street, all within one minute walk of each other.  Local real ale abounds in all.  Cornish favourite brews are Skinners (brewed in Truro), Doom Bar (Sharpe's of Rock) and Tribute (St. Austell Brewery). Several ciders are also available.

Good pub grub is served on Saturday lunch times in the Crab and Ale House. The largest sports bar in town is Bunters in Little Castle Street.  Simultaneous multi-game Sky-TV viewing is shown.  No food is served here though you can bring/consume your own.  

Full Sky Sports facilities and a fully licensed bar are available at the Treyew Road ground.  Choice of food on match day includes burgers, sausage rolls, pasties and chips etc.

Cornish pasties and saffron buns are the local Cornish delicacies.  Several bakeries claim their pasties are the best, but this is open to debate. Rowe's pasties are considered one of the best. 

For those staying over on Saturday night, accommodation is somewhat limited within the City.  The County Arms (St Austell Brewery owned) has brand new rooms and the location is only 5 minutes walk from the ground.  The Donnington B and B opposite the ground includes a generous cooked breakfast.

There are a few other B&B's dotted around but hotels are surprisingly thin on the ground (and expensive). The city centre is vibrant with plenty of pubs and very cosmopolitan eateries. Indian, Chinese, Nepalese, English, French, Egyptian, Turkish and even a new dedicated Greek restaurant are available.

Fans from other visiting clubs tend to stay overnight in either Newquay (15miles away) or Falmouth (9 miles).  Both towns have ample accommodation and arguably a more vibrant nightlife.
